ANY talks between France and the United States on crafting a new nuclear deal with Iran can only “build on” the current terms, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said yesterday.
Her remarks came after French President Emmanuel Macron had told reporters, after meeting US President Donald Trump in Washington, that a “new agreement” was possible.
Mr Trump has repeatedly attacked the deal, which provided for greater inspections of and restrictions on Iran’s civil nuclear programme in return for an easing of Western sanctions, on increasingly far-fetched grounds, trying to lump in his various disagreements with Iran.
Typically, Mr Trump has not said whether he will withdraw the US from the deal by a May 12 deadline he has set.
Mr Macron said during his state visit to the US that the current deal should not be scrapped without a replacement.
Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that he had already told Mr Macron that “we will not add anything to the deal or remove anything from it, even one sentence. The nuclear deal is the nuclear deal.”
